An American tourist was arrested in Peru after a woman was found lying on the sidewalk outside his hotel.

According to police, the woman fell from the 4th-floor window of the San Pedro Inn hotel in Lima.

Surveillance videos captured the woman writhing in pain and rolling from side to side on the pavement after falling to the ground.

Thankfully, the woman survived and was taken to a hospital with a broken leg.

According to police, the two were arguing after Bruce Bradshaw realized that $100 went missing. He accused 22-year-old Perla Reategui Mendoza of taking the money.

The couple was seen walking upstairs to their room at 1:35 a.m.

About half-an-hour later, Reategui was seen going downstairs to the lobby. Bradshaw was seen on video following her while closing his shirt buttons.

Surveillance video shows Reategui trying to leave the hotel but Bradshaw stopped her from doing so. The couple then returned to the room.

At 2:41 a.m., the woman was heard screaming outside. Bradshaw was accused of pushing Mendoza out of the window.

Videos were posted to YouTube, showing Bradshaw being arrested. He was taken to the Surquillo police station for questioning.
